Q. I work at the PPD office downtown and I have been watching the construction between the PPD building and the Cape Fear River. It seems that all they have done over the last six months is just move dirt back and forth. What is planned for that area or why does it look like no progress has been made in a long time?
A. The soil being moved around is being dredged from developer Charles Schoninger’s marina project, and will be used as fill for the parcels surrounding the marina, said Wilmington Planning Manager Ron Satterfield. Ground was broken last year for the marina. Schoninger also plans an adjacent hotel.
